Wordless Wednesday: My most expensive orchid




Vanda Rosalind Cheok x Vanda Varut Leopard is the most expensive orchid recently added to my collection. It is this plant’s first time to bloom in 14 years. I guess it’s worth the wait for the red-mottled yellow flowers are quite large about 6 inches wide. Honestly, I wasn’t attracted to it at first or second glimpse but then again…once you’ve got orchid fever, you couldn’t resist to collect.

    She is a beauty! 14 years! I can’t imagine waiting that long. I would probably have thrown out my plant or relegated it to the back.
